HUNT for HISTORY EVENT: REDMOND BUNGALOWS

Saturday, May 13, 2017

 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Centennial Park, Downtown Redmond

FREE to participate in this self-guided history tour 

In celebration of National Preservation Month, the City of Redmond Historic Landmark Commission is excited to announce the return of ‘This Place Matters’ photo contest and the ‘Hunt for History’ mystery event. ‘Hunt for History’ is a self-guided walking/biking tour from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 13. To take part, pick up tour maps and clue booklets at Centennial Park, then venture out on bike, foot or car to the designated buildings. Read historic plaques and learn about the history of each building, the colorful characters who toiled there and architectural trends during the time they were built.

Prize drawings for the history tours will be held at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. If you would like to be entered for the drawing, return completed clue booklets to Centennial Park before the drawings. The first three adult and children booklets drawn at each time showing the correct answers will win prizes. Allow about 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete the history tours depending on your pace and if you are walking or biking.  While at Centennial Park enjoy displays about historic preservation and bicycle and pedestrian planning efforts in Redmond. 

“We are excited to offer this 3rd annual collaboration of historic preservation and encouraging community residents to get out of their cars, get active and find out how easy and fun it is to explore the City on bike or foot and learn about Redmond's history,” said Scott Woodford, Senior Planner and staff liaison to the Historic Landmarks Commission.
